Bob, the bench+ (KG, Bradley, Stiemsma (6 blocks now), Sasha, Ray forged a 13-point lead, and the starters are just managing to stay even. They've had so many stops in this quarter but couldn't take advantage to solidify a comfortable lead. They did lead by the magic 17 at one point but couldn't hold it. Everything is jumpers.

I am not enjoying the refereeing!! Eddie Rush absolutely kills the Celtics. But,
then again, they make it easy for him.

Ros, good news with your husband, and the Cs are looking good tonight. Now let's see Ray get hot, the C's win and all will be as it should be.

I saw that Steamer was credited with 5 blocks. 10 points too! Nice game by the kid. I guess Doc's words had an effect on him.

Not on Rondo? His stat sheet is underwhelming, as is KG's.

Rosalie, I'm so glad to hear that Bill aced the surgery. Quick recovery and the two of you can relax and enjoy life.

my wife and I hope to have some experiences I can tell you about and some I can't tell you about. I don't know if we've looked forward to any trip as much as this one. It's basically a trip we're taking because we're still both vertical. My research hours on the cities we'll visit now exceed 300. And Berlin very kindly chipped in with some excellent information on Vienna.

Oh, and we'll be gone from April 14 through May 2. I'm not taking my laptop either (in the interest of traveling light) so will be doing my best to communicate through my Droid and whatever hotel computers I can use.

lead by 9, KG going to the line.

Will a 10 point lead with 8 to go hold up?

Who knows whether the lead will hold up? Who knows if the Red Sox will ever score another run? Inquiring minds want to know. Interesting to see the lineup Doc's playing down the stretch (including lots of minutes for KG).

That cut by Pierce was the number 52 play. Rondo called it.

I really hope Ray did find his stroke, because we need him back!!! Starter or 6th man, 19 points, let him shoot!!!

good night all! HAPPY EASTER TO THOSE WHO CELEBRATE THE DAY!

A really nice win. Balance of power between the starters and bench evening out, which will be tough for opponents to deal with over time. They used the paint and tight defense to manufacture the first big run. And, after pitty pattering around with jumpers in the third period, they had the cushion from that run to fall back on, and they finally went on another run to ice it.

Doc's obviously still looking for the right rotation formula, but we're beginning to get the drift how the direction he's taking. The one constant has been defense. The question to answer now is whether the starters minus Ray and the bench with Ray can mount enough consistent offense to take advantage of the defensive stops.

There are still well over two weeks and some testing games to go. And testing games is exactly what the need to find out how to use various player combinations to their best advantage.

Nice posting with everyone.

Nice sentiment, Rosalie. I'm ashamed to have forgotten to wish everyone Happy Easter. May everyone's eggs be brown.
